Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden should switch jobs.
It makes sense for the Democrats, actually. Clinton has done an incredible job as secretary of state. First of all, she has worked harder than anyone should ever be expected to. She has managed to do the impossible: She is the ambassador of the United States to the world, maintaining her credibility while playing the bad guy to President Obama's good guy, such as with North Korea, Iran and Israel, and still looking good. She has been a true team player. If Clinton is dissatisfied with her role, you would never know it. She has been loyal and supportive to the president and has maintained a good relationship with him and with others in the White House. If she is being left out of the policymaking, or being sent on trips to keep her out of town, she has not shown it. She is cheerful, thoughtful, serious and diligent. There are no horror stories about her coming out of the State Department. Most notable, though, is that Bill Clinton has not been the problem that so many anticipated. He has been supportive of her and of Obama, and he has stayed out of the limelight and been discreet about his own life.
In short, the arguments against Hillary Clinton being Obama's vice president have pretty much evaporated.
So, what kind of running mate would she be? We've seen the team player. Now consider Hillary the Democratic campaigner. She is tireless and relentless.(continued)

I'm quite sure that's part of the plan.
This comes from the woman who started rumors about Hillary’s sexuality (& female lovers) to have something to talk about at her parties. I’m sure Hillary is thrilled.
Yikes! You mean martial law to quell the riots and bring in the ‘new world order!’ I hope you are wrong about that!
I was thinking that it would have to be strong arming Obama to step down voluntarily in a manner that ‘saves face.’
This, I think, is an impossible task. At first I thought, perhaps, that they would blame Bush (i.e. ‘old white men’). “My fellow Americans, the policies needed to save the prosperity and freedom that our country has long enjoyed cannot be enacted due to the constant obstructionism of those so entrenched in racism that they would see our democracy perish rather than flourish as long as an African American holds the office of the presidency....” This would blame the failure of Obama on us and further entrench racial division and the false, perceived ‘need’ for race quotas and the Dems to represent the oppressed.I believe this would result in riots too but some on the left would silently be relieved to take this route out of the obvious disaster of his presidency.
Or, what is to stop Obama from claiming serious medical problems? Initially with a promise to return to office as soon as he is well (in order to smooth the transition). Once out of the WH for awhile, he can make a full recovery and say his ‘life threatening illness’ made him appreciate his family more and that he wants to spend more time with them. This would only come about with sufficient black mail and with his past, surely there is enough. This excuse would not be accepted as truthful by a portion of the African American community - it would cause alienation there and suspicions that the republicans or racists sabotaged him. IN the meantime, Obama would be feted as a hero. I dunno.
The scariest one, one I had not thought of, is the intentional race riots requiring martial law that I think you meant in your post. This would entrench Dem power as a large portion of the country would blame the repubs.
She is setting up to challenge him in 2012. Mark my words, she is trying to appear to be playing nice, and she’ll keep it up until after the midterms, but after that (within two months), his “incompetence” and “squandering a Dem majority” will result in her jumping ship and starting her 2012 campaign.
How can she defeat Obama when she is PART of his administration?
Hillary is a has been.
She is a fool...
